Bio  伝記


八十年代国際化の息子 書道師範石原艸亭の生徒 版画家 写真家 美術の先生(ポリテクニックの場合) 剣道の錬士 お父(子供たち二人) ツーリング自転車のオタク

Benjamin Uno creates two-dimensional artworks using mainly drawing, painting, and printmaking techniques.

Currently his concern is with the hand-drawn and written mark, and how it can both pay homage to,
and supersede, photography. 
He has worked in Film and Television, and also in the Performing Arts.

As an educator he has taught Art in culturally diverse and challenging settings, which has expanded his understanding of contemporary Art and how it is understood in a post-colonial world.

In the martial art of Kendo he holds the rank of Renshi. 


Uno is partnered with two children and can often be seen on the streets of Melbourne riding his bike.
